Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2013. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.
Starting with three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online, not only will Resident Evil 6 deliver both different perspectives and gameplay styles but, with the introduction of the innovative Crossover mechanic players will be able to team up and share the horror. At key moments during the game, up to four players can join together online to tackle a specific situation, with some stages seeing the usual partnerships swapped to further increase the depth of gameplay.
Once players have completed the initial three campaigns they will unlock an all new campaign featuring Resident Evil’s very own femme fatale, Ada Wong. A single player experience, Ada’s campaign features unique missions, gameplay and weapons which will provide answers to the unanswered questions from the first three campaigns.

Resident Evil 6 is not a Resident Evil game. It has the Resident Evil title, but none of what made Resident Evil, well, Resident Evil. Resident Evil 6 has devolved into a action shooter with zombies. No more difficult survival resource management, no tight claustrophobic corridors, no armosphere, nothing but running and running. There are Resident Evil characters and some classic enemies, but there is nothing standout about them. As for the story, it is just a stupid villain using stupid zombies and not as stupid shapeshifting zombies for still stupid reasons because stupid. Its all stupid Resident Evil 6 can only be fun if you do not treat it as a Resident Evil game. Instead, pretend you are playing a brand new zombie game, because if you go in expecting a Resident Evil experience you will be disappointed.
A Disappointing SequelTheForgery | Dec. 28, 2015 | See all TheForgery's reviews »
Resident Evil 6 may look stunning in promotional photos and trailers but upon dissecting the game, it's rotten on the inside. This may be the worst Resident Evil game in the series. The gameplay offers nothing refreshing and feels like it was copied and pasted AGAIN, but somehow, made worse. Writing is completely devoid and the plot lacks any substance. Quick time events have not been removed even though they should be as they take up too much of the game. The poorly developed control system is not helping either as it is way too complicated and frustrates just about any gamer. As such, even if one is to get past these issues, the horrible AI will probably make up for it, by providing comedy. It's that bad.

Resident Evil 6 is a great addition to the series. I personally skipped RE5 but have been a huge fan of the series since the remake of the original for the gamecube. Since the original, the series has lost much of the horror aspect of the game and traded it in for a more action packed adventure. RE6 is the pentacle of this change. This game is full of fun and enjoyable action. Compared to the others the biggest change to the game is its advancement in graphics. This is a very well polished game visually and it is hard to beat exploding zombie heads in hd. I played with a controller and the handling is on point. RE6 does everything right in the RE series except for its lack of horror. Definitely worth a purchase if you are a fan of the series.
This is the best RE game ever!aykttprk | May 3, 2015 | See all aykttprk's reviews »
This game is a adventure/action horror game with 4 epic stories. Choosing Leon/Helena story allows you to focus on more undead-kind foes, solving ancient riddles and defeating huge bosses. Choosing Jake/sherry story will focus you on trying to escaping threats and being hunted by a unkillable hunter. Choosing Chris/Piers story will focus more on B.O.W and army duties. Choosing ada story allows you fight unbelievable strong B.O.Ws. There are also other kinds of gamemodes like: agent hunt, mercenaries and mercenaries no mercy. Agent hunt allows you to play as a undead/B.O.W against player controlled agents. Mercenaries allows you to fight against hordes of enemies. Your given a timer in that time try to kill as many foes as you can. The no mercy one is the same as the normal mercenaries game. But: more enemies, easier to kill the common ones and allows you to play as one of the left 4 dead 2 survivors and also fight against l4d2 special infected. This game has a cool melee, mission and skill system.

One of the better newer installments of the Resident Evil franchise that I have played. It has 4 separate yet interweaving campaigns. Each campaign has it's own HUD style and play style. You can play whichever campaign you want in any order, however I would recommend starting with Jakes, the Leons, then Chris and lastly the Ada campaign which will answer a lot of previously unanswered questions. Gameplay wise, the games a blast! Like other current era RE games, this isn't typical Survival horror and is more action oriented. Still, if you enjoy the shooter feel of RE4 and RE5, then RE6 will blow you away! In fact I only have one issue, and it's always been a Resident Evil related problem for me. Camera angles and controls. For instance When you are in a chase scene, the camera is directly in front of you, so you can see the monster approaching from behind. Then the camera abruptly changes so you can see the chasms in front of you that you have to jump across. The problem with that is, while running you were making the character run south(As per the camera angle), then with the view switch you need to be running north, which means there's a brief second where your character wastes precious seconds to briefly turn and run toward the beast chasing you. It's kinda annoying! Still, it's a great game with spectacular graphics and ranges in my top 3 favorite RE games.
